I was just looking at the Trumph65 LX and the DLX trying to figure out what the difference is (I still don't know). 


And I noticed that several websites (BBB, Walmart, etc) say, for the DLX, "Rear-facing: for children 5-40 lbs and up to 29" tall"


I assume it's a typo of some sort that has somehow gotten to several of the major companies, but I still thought it was weird.  My 12 month old 18 pound daughter is 29" tall, and is nowhere NEAR the top of any carseat ever, not even the bucket.  I'm wondering if this would make people think their kids had outgrown the seat before they really did.


Just wondering if anybody has any insight on that.

Does your daughter have long legs, or a long torso? My DD (6 months) is about 27" and has a long torso, and in cloth diapers she is JUST at the limit of her bucket seat - her head is just lower than an inch from the top of the shell.

it's absolutely a typo. there's no height limit listed on the evenflo website, they go by the shell height.
